To me, coriander paratha is the perfect bread to be served with curry. Even better is to top it with smashed avocado. I used a combination of salt, pepper and lime to flavour the avocado.
When I started blogging on WordPress.com, there was no choice about the permalinks my blog used. They included the date and to this day I still see many bloggers using this format. When I moved to WordPress.org I maintained this aspect of my blog. However, when I won a session with a SEO guru, he changed all of my permalinks. A global change was done so that the date was removed. At the time I did not know what he was doing, and trusted that his work was to my benefit. This however led to several issues. The one was that all my internal links showed up as being broken. A broken link is one that is displayed with a
line running through it. However, to Google this is seen as an error. I am slowly working my way through all the broken links to fix the internal redirections.
In theory, when you change the URL of a blog post you should actually set up a 301 redirect. That means if someone types in ABC and the post is actually XYZ, your blog automatically takes them to where they are meant to be. But if you don’t set that up then when they type in ABC it comes up with a 301 not found error. This does not bode well for Search Engine Optimisation and I am sure there are lots of 301 errors on my blog. Thankfully I am not concerned with SEO rankings and will get around to sorting them out when I can run a crawl error log on my site. In the meantime I will just carry on learning from the gift that keeps on giving.
